Newcastle paying the price for missing out on targets - Benitez

Newcastle paying the price for missing out on targets - Benitez

"I think we'll know a lot in a month's time and if he doesn't get what he wants than you might see it starting to unravel".

"Sometimes it is not about you want, it is about what you need and what you can afford now".

The club has signed five players at a cost of just over £30million so far this summer.

Benitez blamed inflated prices for Newcastle's struggles.

"It's quite hard for every team, but especially the ones that do not have as much money as the others", he said.

Whilst it's conceivable that Perez would knock back a move to Turkey, Newcastle are able to provide Premier League football, good wages, and a decent financial solution for Arsenal.

When Benitez committed to stay at Newcastle at the end of last season he was promised "every last penny" by club owner Mike Ashley to invest in the squad, but the reality has not been so simple.

"We have a big squad and a lot of competition but I need to work hard and in the moments I am on the pitch, give my best", the Ghana worldwide explained.

Benitez, however, reiterated his commitment to the club and said he was focussed on helping the team avoid immediate relegation back to the Championship.

The 28-year-old forward joined Arsenal from the La Liga outfit last summer after Arsene Wenger's side activated his £17.5 million release clause.

"It's very hard for me because my Chinese is not good enough", he said, referencing links with the Chinese Super League.

But now he is ready to establish himself as a Premier League player - and he is relishing the challenge of facing Tottenham Hotspur in United's curtain raiser on Sunday. It has to be something you can not control.
